The 1909 Society

The 1909 Society, which commemorates the college's founding year, recognizes Keene State College's most generous annual donors. We are deeply grateful for the society's dedication to the success of students and programs at the college and its support of the KSC mission: to prepare students to think critically and creatively, to engage in active citizenship, and to pursue meaningful work.

Membership in the 1909 Society includes all donors who make an annual gift of more than $1,000 to any designation on campus. Further recognition is given to those making an additional commitment to student success:

  • President's Circle: The President of Keene State College recognizes the dedication to excellence in liberal arts education of those distinguished donors who are able to give annually at the highest level of $10,000 or more to any designation on campus.
  • Provost's Circle: The Provost, chief academic officer for the college, recognizes the commitment to student achievement of those donors who give $5,000 to $9,999 to any designation on campus.
  • Recent Graduates: As a special incentive for alumni who have graduated within the past 10 years, entry to the 1909 Society will start at $100 for each year that they have been out, building their gift to $1,000 by the time they've reached 10 years.
